I saw an report on one Excellent idea that would create JOBs for Hundreds of Thousands of Americans and maybe far more. The idea is that we as consumers always try to buy and use American made products, which includes everything from building materials, cars, toys and clothing just to mention a few items. This is something that we can all participate in and do our part to help our Nation. Look for American manufactured items when shopping, if a store does not carry a particular item ask the store to start carrying it. It takes little effort and could benefit us all, it is up to us to at least try and do our part.
Do You have any ideas? Who knows if some real good ones are suggested they could be passed on to our Reps and they could help on their end.

Economic recovery will not come as a result of consumption.

What are Your Solutions to Create Jobs
Get rid of the current anti-business, anti-capitalist regime currently residing in the White House, that has implemented job killing regulations, job killing taxes (more to come with obamacare) and uncertainty, anxiety in the business community/individuals.

Really the first and only meaningful step is regime change. Obama's policies of overregulation and massive cradle to grave government are driving the uncertainty preventing businesses from hiring.

I suggest cutting out all tax loopholes, and raising taxes above $250,000 to 80%. That should create lots of jobs

IMHO American business is not hiring so the economic recovery will be delayed long enough to get a Republican pig elected in 2012.

What are Your Solutions to Create Jobs

1. repeal al the globalist liberal "freetrdae" agreements like nafta..etc


2. eliminate/severely reduce to corporate tax (we have the HIGHEST in the world)


3. bring back/raise import tarriffs...this includes USA companies that MAKE their stuff in mexico..you made it there you PAY to IMPORT it into the USA


4. get rid of the prorated (DISCRIMINATORY) income tax. and have either a flat income tax, or better yet (since a good portion of income is never reported) a consumption tax like the fairtax... Americans For Fair Taxation: Americans For Fair Taxation


5. eliminate ALL political contributions....make it that NO ELECTION is bought and paid for...have the candidate have EXACTLY THE SAME amount of money and run of their TRUE MERITS


6. get rid of some of the stupid and redundant laws...to include some of the more recient(ie...and incandesand bulb may use more electricty, but its NOT a biohassard such as the mercury filled florescesnts)



thats a start

In other words you will not take part and would rather support the economy of other nations. FYI if you do not understand that buying products made here helps those making those products here then your arguement is not logical. Anyway I expected to see plenty of more posts by those without ideas but plenty of whine, thanks for not disappointing me.
